As part of our continued growth, we are delighted to announce that David Hackshall has joined West Coast as Managing Director effective at the end of May.
David has many years' experience in the industry having run an H-D dealership early in his career before progressing to work for the Motor Company in Oxford, developing their business throughout the UK and Europe. Most recently David was the country manager for Harley-Davidson Canada having held the same role in the UK for almost 9 years.
Owner and current MD Don Rutherford is particularly pleased:
"David knows our business like no other and I'm sure our customers and staff will give him a very warm welcome indeed. David join us at a really exciting time for West Coast and Harley-Davidson. Having celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2019 and topped it off as Harley-Davidson Dealer of the Year in 2020, we've got the reputation and experience, and with David's appointment we've upped our game and now have more resources on hand to match the exciting new products on tap from Harley in the coming years. We're really looking forward to have him join us here in our award winning dealership in Glasgow."
David Hackshall responded: "I'm very excited to be part of this dynamic team and look forward to meeting as many of our customers as soon as possible. There's some really exciting times ahead of us all".
West Coast Harley-Davidson are well recognised in the motorcycle world as being one of Scotland's top biking destinations having won MCN Dealer of the Year in 2017 and 2019 and their £2.5m showroom in Hillington is a testament to that reputation.
